You might miss this little chapel in Valencia's cathedral: after you enter the front doors, it's to the right. During our visit (July, 2014) it was obscured by some cleaning or restoration work, but just head down the little hallway amidst the scaffolding and canvases, where you'll find... The Holy Grail. All those knights in the middle ages should only... More

I went here to see the holy grail. The cathedral looks grand from the outside and is even better when you enter. The arches and columns are big and carefully crafted. The entry is cheap about 5€ and an audio guide is also provided for some extra money. The holy grail enclosure is seperate and is most peaceful. You can... More

They claim they have the "Holy Grail" and it might very well be it, but that is not the only reason to go. This building is amazing with all the extravagant detail the architects/engineers went to. The wood working is amazing, the fresco is amazing. Leonardo DaVinci and his family worked on this. Definitely do the audio tour, gives great... More

There are numerous alcoves and small chapels within the cathedral. Still an active house of worship. Do get the audio headset. The grail is at stop # 18, the Capilla del santo Caliz. Very impressive.

Worth seeing at least once in your life. There is a very nice outside cafe across the plaza from the Chapel

Valencia Cathedral is packed full of interesting features that make it worth paying 5 euros for a guided tour. The alabaster, carefully angled windows that keep the place cool and direct light to the altar are worth the admission fee alone in my view. Alternatively you can often pop in at the end of services for a more informal look... More

The five euros each we paid, to get into the cathedral, gave us access to the special chapel housing (supposedly) the cup of the Holy Grail. Surely no one can prove or disprove that this is the chalice used by Christ at the Last Supper. Even our audio guide said that the story was a mixture of facts & legend.... More

Big billing, tiny room, strange sight but who says it's not the real thing, the final room on the cathedral tour.

I appreciate the historic significance of what's in the room for serious Christians. However, for everyone else it's really just another room in the Cathedral. The room itself is very tall and definitely one of the standouts of the Cathedral. The cup is visible, but it is kept in a case that is far away from the area you can... More

It would be easy to miss this jewel unless you were looking for it. It is one of the last chapels #19 in the Cathedral and you might be overloaded by the time you get to it. Take a few minutes to appreciate the beautiful chapel and the object that is displayed here.
